    Dave Sveum shot in hunting accident...by Robin Yount....

    http://espn.go.com/chicago/mlb/story...nting-accident

    "The bird was in front of him and I was about 50 yards up on a hill," Sveum said Tuesday at baseball's winter meetings. "He got the bird up and lost track of where I was. He pulled the trigger and was like, 'Uh, oh.' "
    Lol. It's got the cubs written all over it.

    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    He's lucky to be alive, frankly. This kind of stuff makes me sick.

    Maybe Sveum should have played a position other than SS. This is why Ernest Riles never goes hunting with Yount.

    I know the guy manages the Cubs but I'm not sure that's a reason to shoot him.

    No, but Dick Cheney was.

    This almost seems like a microcosm of that fail of a franchise.

    "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    Trying to put him out of his misery?
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg
